In the news this morning, Maine Governor Paul LePage addressed the 128th Legislature yesterday in Augusta and asked them to delay the recently passed citizen's initiatives related to increasing the income tax for households earning more than $200,000 and to increasing the minimum wage.  LePage said both initiatives would do harm to the Maine economy, particularly for senior citizens.  Speaker of the House Sara Gideon indicated that the Democrats will honor the will of the Maine people.
